If this works then that is a major blessing as the problem with pancreatic cancer is you dont detect it till late.

Unfortunately it wont take much of the cost out because you will still need the same imaging and surgeries if you screen positive. However it could dramatically impact the survival rates.

Either way most impressive for a 15 year old.

You fricking conspiracy theorists kill me. If the test does in fact have good positive predictive value and is in fact able to detect an otherwise universally poor prognostic cancer early when it may be treated, why in God's name would pharmaceutical companies which stand to profit from chemotherapy sales to a much larger patient population have an inclination to bury the test?

Think people!

Exactly. Easy to use screening for cancer INCLUDES more. Not excludes. It will cause more people to get treated, but also impact survival rates due to earlier detection. There is essentially no screening at all for pancreatic cancer as CA19-9 isnt drawn unless its suspected. Its only gonna add $0.03 to everyones medical bill, not cut costs. It might save lives though minuscule price to pay for the potential life saving aspect.

Yeah. They don't make near as much if they go straight to hospice.

As much as I try not to get into conspiracy theories, there's been plenty of examples over time of big corporations burying/trying to bury inventions that are cheaper and more effective, just to keep their $$$$.

This, of course, is so very different from every other business, right?

You don't think medicine should have a slightly different mission?

Listening to this kid talks, it pisses me off. After getting past the incredible terrible voice, he says 'and' about 2,576 times during the 9 minute video

Hopefully over the next few years he'll take some public speaking lessons.
